Seydisfjordur to Hirtshals, Denmark

We cruise the North Atlantic and the North Sea on board Smyril Line, MS Norröna, a Faroese owned and crewed ship. She plies the route from Hirtshals to the Faroes and to  Iceland year round. If you are planning to sail on MS Norröna  the summer months then book months ahead, especially if you want space for your bike and a cabin.
The ship was full for our sailing. Orlanda was packed nose to tail with other bikes, a bus and a Unimog only inches behind.
Quite a tight wee space for Dick to tie her down. Riders all helped each other and soon we were up on the passenger decks.

The food on board was very good. I'll post some photos for inspiration for the Cook Strait InterIslander.

Try carrying two Touratech bags and helmet through this vehicle maze. It would be easier to walk the roofs.
 
Bring your own tie downs.
 
Numerous camper vans.
 
But the food upstairs was excellent.
Faroese prawns.
 
New Zealand tenderloin steak.
 
Faroese apple pie. Kiwi fruit, Star fruit and blue berries from far away.
 
 





 

 

 

 

In Hirtshals.
Safe haven in the harbour.
A storm is brewing and comes lashing and crashing in the night.
